Grammys broadcast will be anything but sexy

Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII Halftime ShowAmerican network CBS appears to subscribe to the “more is more” school of thought when it comes to Grammy Awards attire.

A hilarious email from CBS (who are broadcasting the awards in the US) has been leaked that urges all female talent attending the awards ceremony to make sure they cover up… or else.

“Thong type costumes are problematic,” the email states, before asking attendees to “please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack.”

They also want to see no “puffy bare skin” around the genital region or side boob for that matter.

Here’s the email:

CBS Program Practices advises that all talent appearing on camera please adhere to Network policy concerning wardrobe.

Please be sure that buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered. Thong type costumes are problematic. Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack. Bare sides or under curvature of the breasts is also problematic. Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples. Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible “puffy” bare skin exposure. Please avoid commercial identification of actual brand name products on T-shirts. Foreign language on wardrobe will need to be cleared. OBSCENITY OR PARTIALLY SEEN OBSCENITY ON WARDROBE IS UNACCEPTABLE FOR BROADCAST. This as well, pertains to audience members that appear on camera. Finally, The Network requests that any organized cause visibly spelled out on talent’s wardrobe be avoided. This would include lapel pins or any other form of accessory.
